It’s taken forever and a day to finally see both Arnold Schwarzenegger taking the Celebrity Apprentice desk, and Emerald City come to life, but NBC has finally made a firm commitment. Both high-profile new series have set January bows, just barely into 2017.
Just the other day, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s long-awaited Pump finally seemed to move forward with an exploration of bodybuilding culture’s origins, but will cultural successor Dwayne Johnson beat him to the punch? The Rock has his own Muscle Beach drama greenlit at USA, and there’s bound to be some overlap.
What, you thought The Celebrity Apprentice enough to contain Arnold Schwarzenegger’s impeccable pecs on TV? Not so, puny readers, as the ex-Governator’s loosely autobiographical bodybuilder series Pump has officially landed at CBS Television Studios with a development deal.
The world might be a very different place by the time we get to 2017, but in Celebrity Apprentice’s case at least, change is for the better.

But, this is Hollywood and perfect sense doesn’t always apply. Now, Terminator Genisys producer Dana Goldberg has spoken publicly for the first time saying future Terminator movies haven’t been canceled, they’re just being “re-imagined.” Oh great, another reboot!
NBC seems to have re-welcomed Donald Trump to the airwaves with this past Friday’s Tonight Show, but The Celebrity Apprentice will be back with a new host all the same. Trump is officially terminated, now that Arnold Schwarzenegger will get behind the desk as the newest host of The Celebrity Apprentice.
